Part of 9/11 landing gear found near Ground Zero

A part of the landing gear believed to be from a plane used in the 9-11 attacks has been found wedged between two buildings about three blocks away from Ground Zero.

Investigators are now working to determine if it’s from the American Airlines plane, or the United Airlines plane that crashed into the Twin Towers on Sept. 11, 2001. The part includes a visible Boeing identification number.

The area where the part was found has been secured as a crime scene and the medical examiner’s office will complete a full safety evaluation and sift the soil around the building for possible human remains.

    That mosque they want to build has no business being 1.5 blocks away where Muslim radicals massacred 3,000 American citizens. That's a slap in the face to the people who lost loved ones .

      The mosque shouldn't be anywhere near the sacred ground. As far as I am concerned finding part of the landing gear near the mosque is a sign from GOD not to build it close to the memorial.

    Sounds kinda fishy.It is found 12 yrs later and precisely fit in between 2 buildings and has a rope around it. I guess once they run the serial number and maybe they can back track and find out if it was from one of the planes that hit the world trade center.
